Here's an Irregular Latvian 'tu'-torial!

Our favorite YouTuber, Anete Germane, is back with another entertaining and educational video, this time tackling a topic that causes headaches to any learner of Latvian: whether to use 'tu', 'jūs' 'Tu' or 'Jūs' when addressing other people.

As she points out, getting this small matter wrong can result in causing anything from mild embarassment to serious offense, so a few minutes spent watching the latest 'Irregular Latvian' video could save you an awful lot of pain, particularly if you have Latvian family members who demand the proper levels of respect and/or intimacy.
